“Definitely worth a stop.”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Boy has the old Dixons Creek general store improved. It's been through a few incarnations in recent years but the current operators seem to have finally tapped the vein of gold.

We dropped in as a group of 4 without a booking yesterday and were happily accommodated by very obliging staff.

Everything we had was delicious and arrived very quickly. The number of people pouring in the doors says volumes about how good this place is.

We will be back. Keep up the great work !

Hi, it's true that this venue has been through many changes over the years but we are very fortunate that we have many regular and new customers that enjoy our relaxed atmosphere. There are so many wonderful wineries and fine dining venues in the area that we just try to offer good food and service at reasonable prices. It is so important to us and other Trip Advisor members for reviews such as yours and we appreciate it very much. Thank you and best regards Kristina.

“Great cafe!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

It was my partners birthday and we were on a wine tour, we had booked the lunch for 17 people. We all had different meals but I had the chicken burger which was amazing, we all loves meals that fill the plate and that meal was massive! The staff were so lovely and attentive, I had brought a cake for me partner which he didn't know about and the staff did everything they could to serve it well. The prices were great too, for such a large meal very worth it.

“GREAT SERVICE & FANTASTIC FOOD”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I went here with a group of 10 people this Monday night and the food was absolutely great. Everyone had different meals and we were not disappointed. The place was very busy and food and drinks were delivered quickly. The steak was cooked to perfection. The staff are very friendly and could not fault the fantastic service. Thank you so much to Kristina, Mark, Emily & Lauren for a great night out ♥

“A Gem in the Yarra Valley”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

For us, this is a local restaurant though we have only been there twice. Both times were a great experience. Our most recent visit was for lunch. Menu choices were varied and well priced. My steak was cooked just as I had requested and finally a place that serves a salad with more than just lettuce in it! Staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was relaxing and warm, even though the day was cold. Much better than your average cafe food, plentiful amounts and served on beautifully unique shaped plates. We're glad we don't have to travel far to eat here but for those of you further away it is well worth the drive.
